Monitor Unit Calculations for External Photon and Electron Beams in radiation oncology covers the information you need for implementing the formalism of Monitor Unit Dose Calculations. Since there is no nationally recommended consistent criteriaMoreMonitor Unit Calculations for External Photon and Electron Beams in radiation oncology covers the information you need for implementing the formalism of Monitor Unit Dose Calculations.

Since there is no nationally recommended consistent criteria and formalism for the determination or verification of monitor units for photon and electron beams, there are a variety of different systems and dosimetric functions in use. These differences become more significant when more complex treatment modalities are implemented using newer technologies. This book describes practical methods for calculating monitor units for external photon and electron beams.

The main objective of these practical methods is to enable the physicists/doimetrists to perform monitor unit dose calculations using these protocols within their radiation oncology department. Monitor Unit Calculations for External Photon and Electron Beams: includes and describes step-by-step descriptions of methods for implementing both the technical and the clinical aspects of monitor unit dose computations. The material covered are: Monitor Unit Calculations for Photon Beams Monitor Unit Calculations with Head Scatter Factors Monitor Unit Calculations with Physical Attenuators Monitor Unit Calculations with Dynamic or Virtual Wedges Monitor Unit Calculations for Asymmetric Fields Monitor Unit Calculations with Multileaf Collimators Monitor Unit Calculations with Heterogeneity Corrections Monitor Unit Calculations for Special Photon Procedures Monitor Unit Calculations for Electron Beams Monitor Unit Calculations for Special Electron Procedures Monitor Unit Calculation for Extended SSD Electron Beams Monitor Unit Calculation with Irregularly-Shaped Electron Fields This book is essential for radiation oncology physicists, dosimetrits, treatment planning system designers, and other professionals practicing the radiation oncology field.
